Phone Box houses life-saving equipment in Knockin Heath
Posted: 12/11/2018 02:07:09 PM
Community efforts mean that the once redundant phone box now has a defibrillator located inside ready to be accessed 24 hours a day.
Jamie Richards, Chief Executive of AEDdonate; who supplied the AED said “Its great to see another community recognising the importance of the machines, the chance of survival after Sudden Cardiac Arrest decreases minute by minute, but if someone is shocked with a Defibrillator within 2-3 minutes their chance of survival increases by 70 % ”
“Having an AED within a 2 minute brisk walk from wherever you are is a must. We would welcome communities to get in touch to see if we can help''.
Well done everyone!
